Happy New Year!
Have you ever noticed that in January we seem to collectively move toward new beginnings? Clean slates? Fresh starts? I admit I’m one of those people. I don’t make resolutions necessarily, but I do make goals and I make plans. One of the goals always seems to be to do something to kick start my body towards better health. This year is no different.
I don’t know about you but those pesky cravings seem to get in the way on the very first day! I saw this post on FaceBook this morning from She’s Fit! gym:
Cravings have a “life-cycle” of about 20 minutes. If you are hit with a craving, try to distract yourself with a walk, a phone call, or some other activity while the craving works its way out of your system.
All well and good, but sometimes those cravings follow you around. I strongly recommend (from experience) that if you choose to go for a walk to distract yourself from the craving, its not in the grocery store! Take a look at the picture below (found it online) …epic fail or conspiracy?
